On March 14, the 2013 AOA-sponsored DO Day on Capitol Hill welcomed more than 1,000 participants, including more than 800 osteopathic medical students, from across the nation to Washington, DC.
Attendees were able to speak with members of House and Senate offices about the future of U.S. health care and a diverse array of associated advocacy priorities. This year’s participants held a total of 369 meetings with congressional representatives to discuss issues ranging from medical malpractice liability reform to the nation’s looming physician shortage. Major discussion themes included the current U.S. graduate medical education training capacity and Medicare physician payment.
